Is there such a thing as a case of mistaken BM?
A teenager in Las Cruces, N.M., has been convicted and given probation after he defecated in a man's car, mistakenly thinking it was his girlfriend's car, the Las Cruces Sun-News reported.
The car's owner discovered the 19-year-old soon-to-be soldier in the back seat of his Honda Civic in March pulling up his pants.
"This is your car?" the owner quoted the teen as saying. "I thought this was Desiree's car."
The teen then ran away and subsequently was found in a nearby ditch.
The teen later apologized and paid for the car's broken window and for a broken window of a business nearby, the newspaper reported.
The forensics team was able to tie the teen to both crimes because of a distinctive footprint that matched his tennis shoes, the newspaper reported.
The teen pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal property damage and attempted breaking and entering just before he was to begin his trial on Monday.
